experience. >> jessica, thanks very much. we will be checking back with you as well. dana bash is over in the rotunda inside the capitol. getting some good access to pokes who were arriving, including the spot, where the president will be making his big entrance about an hour or owe from now. dana, what are you seeing? what are you hearing? >> that's right. >> this really is a great location because in the capitol rotunda we will see the president minutes after the swearing in ceremony happens. he will come lou here and walk over towards the senate side of the capitol for a signing ceremony. what that effectively does put himself and cabinet on the payroll but it really is an indication about how every single minute of this ceremony is choreographed for today's imagery and tomorrow's history. this is where the president will start his walk towards history. steps few take once, even fewer, twice. now we are in the crypt of the capitol. >> the president will come down these stairs. >> reporter: senator chuck schumer chair it is inaugural committee and will personally escort the president
bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. dana bash was over at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. tell our viewers, dana, how it unfolded. >> reporter: wolf, of all of the gun control measures that president obama announced earlier this month, banning the assault weapons at least reviving the ban is going to be the most difficult to pass here in congress. even the primary senate sponsor says it will take years. for dianne feinstein, it's personal. >> supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first openly gay public official in america was so traumatic, she rarely discusses it. you were very close to that tragic shooting. but here at the launch, she announced it great detail. >> i was the one who found supervisor milk's body and put a finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. once you have been through one of these episodes, one you see what the crime scene is like, it changes your view of weapons. >> she put on an elaborate event. even getting permission from d.c. to dis
in that dead aassault on the embassy in benghazi. dana bash is our chief congressional correspondent with us as well. wolf, i'll start with you, give us a sense of what you think the tone will be. connie mack saying he thinks she has a ton of respect and no one will be playing gotcha. >> i think it will be respectful, it's only supposed to go on for 90 minutes starting at the top of the hour, and later this afternoon, 90 minutes, so it will be limited in time, she's highly respected, and she's coming after a very serious illness, a concussion followed by a blood clot in her head. she's wrapping up her tenure. so there are serious question that's will be reviewed. >> she's done that before, right? >> she'll do it again today. >> so to some degree, because she has done it before, what else do you think they need to or want to hear from her? >> she didn't herself testify before that accountability review board. they're going to want to hear her side of the story. where was she, why didn't she go on the sunday talk shows, why did she delegate susan rice who has no responsibility for d diplomatic
to give some ground in the debt fight. dana bash is joining us now. dana, are the republicans in the house of representatives blinking a little here? what's going on? >> a little, wolt if. they say they are going to have a vote that will delay the debt ceiling for three months. so what they are doing, if you really look at house republicans who took the majority two years ago, they did it standing on principle for pretty much every squirmish. it seems that they are becoming a bit more sophisticated, rather, but their understanding, it seems, is that you have to pick your battles. losing credit ratings and so forth, that's not a smart battle to wage. look at some of the most conservative members of the house talking to deirdre walsh at the end of their retreat for three days about picking their battles in a better way. >> deal with the smaller ones first, maybe build up a little momentum, credibility, not only with the credit markets but with the folks back home, that we can actually deal with these things, take the small one first, debt ceiling last, i think it's a rational, reasonable thi
. dana bash is live in washington. let's talk about dianne feinstein's props first. she's going to be holding a bushmasterer? >> reporter: i'm not sure if she'll be holding it. she might. she will have more than one assault weapon and she's going to have them on display. there you see the bushmaster ar-15. that is was, of course, the kind of weapon used in the newtown shootings. but the reason she is going to do this, i'm told, is to show specifically her fellow democrat, of which there are half a dozen or more that want to do little if anything to change the assault weapon laws, that you don't need these kinds of guns in the average of ordinary people. that is likely the argument she is going to make. again, it's going to be aimed at her fellow democrats resistant to this. but she is going to have a lot of different people with her to make this argument. this is the unveiling of the premier key legislation she promised to put out at the beginning of congress right after newtown. we are expecting to have quite a show when she comes up in about an hour. >> just so people understa
